This term, the children will encounter two new units in literacy. The first of these will focus on biographies. The children will have the opportunity to put their knowledge of a range of writing techniques to good use as they consider the life and times of space scientists. Skills that they will work on during this unit will include direct and reported speech, verb tenses and time connectives.
The second unit which the children will explore is contemporary narrative with a particular focus on science fiction. The children will have the opportunity to apply their increased understanding of descriptive techniques and ambitious vocabulary to develop their own stories set in space.
